Going Further In 3D Metrology: SHINING 3D Introduces The FreeScan UE

SHINING 3D has introduced the latest addition of the proven FreeScan series of handheld Metrology 3D scanners: the FreeScan UE.

We are living in challenging times, the definition of “normal” has changed fundamentally within a glimpse and “business as usual” looks much different than at the beginning of last year. Cutting edge technology that questions old fashioned and outdated work processes and accelerates engineering, product development and inspection processes has always been SHINING 3D´s specialty. Providing solutions answering needs and requirements of industries and going further, setting new technology standards is what SHINING 3D stands for.

The FreeScan UE has been developed to cater to the needs and requirements of industry professionals and at the same time provide efficient and reliable solutions to tackle the challenges they are facing in their everyday working life. The SHINING 3D Team has thus developed the latest FreeScan handheld laser 3D scanner to foster excellency and high performance even in complex and difficult operation environments, suitable for expert users and beginners alike.

“Innovatively adapting blue laser 3D scanning technology, convincing with high accuracy and stable repeatability capacities rounded off by easy and convenient hardware and software handling, the FreeScan UE will empower professionals across industries to effectively and precisely upgrade their digital workflows in engineering and inspection tasks,” said  Sunny Wong, Product Manager Metrology Scanning, SHINING 3D.

Main features of the FreeScan UE include:

High Accuracy & Stable Repeatability

Freescan UE boasts 0.02mm accuracy  and impresses by stably delivering highly precise results independently and in many diverse application environments.

Portable & light weight

The device weights only 670g, facilitating handheld scanning more easily and avoiding fatigue due to long working time.

Wide range of material adaptions

Supporting the scan of black and reflective surfaces to accommodate a wider range of scanning applications.

High efficiency

The scan area can reach 510*520mm, providing larger field of view for a smoother and more efficient scanning experience.

Easy operation

Totally new UI software provides a user-friendly operating system with simple software setup and guidance through the whole workflow process, allowing users to master the operation at ease.

Seamless docking to inspection software

The scan data can be imported into inspection softwares like Control X, Verisurf Inspect and Einsense Q with one click, increasing the inspection efficiency.

Perceptron: 3D Laser Scanning System

Perceptron: 3D Laser Scanning System

Perceptron has released the SMART3D, a portable laser scanning system for reverse engineering and modelling sectors. It offers a fully integrated automatic rotary table that allows for full 360 deg real-time scanning of parts without the need for targets or best fit alignment, a scanning volume of 200 mm x 225 mm x 225 mm, and an ‘Auto Rescan’ feature.

With a volumetric accuracy of 50 microns and a configurable line density for programmable scan line intervals down to 0.1 mm, it delivers more accuracy than manually operated scanning systems. It also provides 3D polygonised models for reverse engineering, 3D printing or graphical web content, and can also be used for verification of production parts against nominal part geometry data.
